Brett Dennen – Surprise Surprise chords
Surprise, Surprise Brett Dennen Chords This is such a great and hugely underappreciated song! Im almost certain that Brett doesnt do it this way, and there is a ton of adlibbing in the recorded version, but its a good hasty-made foundation. Can be transposed and Capod if desired. It sounds like its on a higher fret in the recording. Also, by no means is a barre on first and third necessary. I have just included it for a better sound, as well as ease, in my opinion. If you feel inclined to play it without a barre, feel free to do so. Listen to the song for the strum pattern, its sort of syncopated. Intro: Am C Fbar Gbar x2 Verse 1:Am CDark clouds gather in the afternoonFbar Come together just to cry Gbar Seagulls struggling against the windAmFalling out of the skyAm CGrandma's gathering aluminum cansFbar In a rusty shopping cart Gbar Born-againers getting their lives togetherAmWhile my whole world's falling apartChorus: Fbar Open up your eyes Gbar It's happening all around you Fbar If it hasn't found you Gbar Well you know it's just a matter of time Fbar Surprise, surprise Gbar What do you think the world owes you Fbar It's not the way it's supposed to go Gbar Well you know it's just a matter of time Verse 2:Am CSongbird sitting in a tree house2Fbar With a trumpet to her lips Gbar I'm laying on my back in the tall green grassAmStaring up at the eclipseAm CWhispers lurking in the alley behindFbar Where the children wear no shoes Gbar Call girls and corner kids hustlingAmSaying what do you got to loseChorus Bridge:E FAnd there's nowhere you can run toC EBecause the eyes are upon youVerse 3:Am CSome of the coming up hard and hungryFbar Stepping up to take your turn Gbar Some of them throwing their money in the fireAmJust to watch it burnChorus It's just a matter of It's just a matter of time
